Hello everyone,
I have a MBP 13 inch, early 2011, 8GB Ram. I would like to upgrade my Hard drive to an Solid state drive. After googling a lot, I came up with these candidates, I have a feeling the Neutron Series GTX is the most powerful, but I am not sure if this brand is a good one, so here is the list:
1. 256GB Crucial m4 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s (SATA III)
2. Neutron Series™ GTX 240GB SATA 3 6Gb/s SSD
3. SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 256GB SATA III MLC
4. SanDisk Extreme Solid State Drive 240GB 550MB/s 520MB/s SATA 6 Gbits/s
5. Intel? Suggestion are welcome
6. Any additional suggestion is more than welcome, I feel all of the above are the best of the best, but if you disagree, please let me know what you think is better.

Thanks a lot for the help

I suggest that you take a look at the OWC web site SSD they have severed me well over the years.

I have the OWC kit. It was tough to install, use the iFixit video.
